My Students

My students come to class every morning with new and exciting stories to tell. My classroom is made up of many different cultures and personalities and we are a daytime family. Some of my students are severely economically disadvantaged.

My students need encounters with technology and other supplies that they do not receive at home.

Donors Choose is a way to help me bring much needed materials to assist my students to become life long learners in an ever changing world where they will be able to keep up with others that have these resources.

My Project

Currently, I have two obsolete desktop computers in my classroom where students can access our computer two times a week, but they need more time. They need time to develop technological skills as well as develop literacy.

My students need additional computers to access literacy programs to be able to be competitive with other kindergartners in our county.

Students will use programs such as i-station, ABC ya, and Starfall. We also have many different PowerPoint sight word and sentence structure activities for learning. Students will have two thirds more time developing literacy and technological skills.
